Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé
The perfect combination of sporty and elegant, the all-new powerful Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé never stops paving the way to fulfil the brand’s promise of ‘Driving Performance’ in every aspect.
Its 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo engine, part of the BlueDIRECT engine family from Mercedes-Benz, provides impressive performance with its 270 kW (367 hp) maximum power and peak torque of 520 newton metres. Sprinting from rest to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, its speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h.
The newly developed front axle, the taut elastokinematics and the highly precise steering make a substantial contribution to the agile driving experience. Especially tough and, therefore, wear-resistant, this coating also reduces friction, thereby contributing to higher efficiency. The AMG powerplant can be identified by the red aluminium insert in the engine cover.
The Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé offers the optimum conditions for high driving dynamics and outstanding comfort on long journeys thanks to the standard-fit AMG Ride Control sports suspension. The four-link front axle is fitted with special steering knuckles and load-bearing joints; all components have been optimised in terms of rigidity.
With the five AMG Dynamic Select transmission modes, namely Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual, the driver can tailor the characteristics of the C 43 4MATIC Coupé to their preference at the tap of a finger.
Aesthetically, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé is outstandingly sporty in appearance – making it instantly recognisable as a member of the AMG family. Characteristic features include the distinctive AMG styling as well as the specific light-alloy wheels. They underscore the brand’s progressive nature and performance.
The interior reinforces the consistently dynamic bias with numerous specially designed details. Ideal for a dynamic driving style, the multifunction sports steering wheel in black leather features a flattened bottom section and red contrasting topstitching, and sits perfectly in the hand. Red contrasting topstitching, designo red safety belts and black floor mats with red edging add attractive highlights to its Artico man-made leather upholstery.
